The news that the Alabama Senate committee blocks Tim Tebow Bill is certainly not surprising. You can go to the site to read more about it, but one sentence caught my eye, Erwin said the bill would not impose a burden on schools, but state education officials said the bill is unworkable because there are no academic standards for home-schooled children.
I don’t know if all state education departments are connected to public school sports, but they are in my state. If you want to play with a public school sport team here, you must enroll at least part time. I don’t know when sports got intertwined with public school academics, but it is a shame that they have, but there is no free lunch. If you want to play public school sports in my state, it has to be by their rules. I’m reminded of an excellent article written by my good friend Peggy Daly Masternak, One Problem… And One Possible Solution.
